What do we teach students in white-dominant schools about race and racism? What does literature instruction that is antiracist look like? How do teachers harness racial literacy to deepen literature instruction? How do we teach race and racism as a concept to be learned?

Rooted in examples from their own and others’ classrooms, the authors of Letting Go of Literary Whiteness offer discipline-specific practices for implementing antiracist literature instruction in White-dominant schools. Join professors and authors Carlin Borsheim-Black and Sophia Tatiana Sarigianides as they discuss these critical questions.
